The historical backbone of JRNOLA is live event coverage. Before COVID, JRNOLA students were credentialled to cover Saints games, Pelicans games, and other major sporting events—from both the sidelines and the pressbox.
Our last few months have been spent, like so many of you, on Zoom. This summer, we gave a new cohort of students a crash course in cultural reporting via our super-physically distant Interview Camp. During camp, students speak with musicians, actors, and even a celebrity chef by video chat.
JRNOLA’s newest venture is a cross-generational podcast called Society, Man. Episodes feature our students talking about big events happening in their world. (Don’t worry, we get silly sometimes too). It’s an unfiltered journey into the minds of the kids coming to eat Millennials’ collective lunch. All podcasts will be hosted on Anchor.fm‘s platform and available for subscription on all devices.
